Non-Compete Agreement

In general, it sounds like you've received good information. The question is whether the company can make an argument that you received something. I'm afraid that no lawyer can give you a definitive answer without having more information. Please feel free to call my office for a consultation if you have any questions whatsoever about whether the employer might try to sue you to stop you from working for the other firm. This is a time for you to be careful, because you do not want to wind up paying someone really big bucks to defend you in a lawsuit.
